9 Months Old Avyan's plea for Breastfeeding Rooms

A nine-month-old baby has sought facilities for his lactating mother from the Delhi High Court. The infant, Avyaan, moved court through his mother Neha Rastogi, complaining of difficulties faced on a daily basis due to the absence of breastfeeding or child care rooms. 

The court noted that the problem existed and issued a notice to Centre, AAP government and civic authorities seeking a response to the petition. Several lactating mothers have complained of unavailability of rooms to breastfeed in public places. Sometimes they are forced to lactate in public which invites censuring and dishonourable looks from the passers-by. With more young moms stepping out of their house, nursing while travelling has become a matter of concern. "Babies usually pull clothes during the feed which make mothers uncomfortable in public," said the petition. The petition added that the concept of public nursing rooms is a dream and it is really important for the young mothers to get out as they are likely to suffer from post-natal depression
